Fish Islands and Prospect Point

Jan 31, 2018 - National Geographic Explorer


Today we made way to the Fish Islands and Prospect Point. We made fantastic use of our kayaks as we explored the beautiful ice in and around the islands. After we moved on to Prospect Point where we made our continental landing. Little did we know that as we stepped onto the Antarctic continent, the crew aboard the ship was preparing a BBQ on the back deck for all to enjoy. As the day came to a close, we parked our ship into an iceberg and took in the stunning views of the fast ice ahead of us.
